This patchset adds support syscall event tracing for compat syscalls.

Patch 1 removes the unnecessary syscall_nr field from syscall metadata,
which was one of the obstacles for adding proper support for compat syscalls.

Patch 2 adds a method to distinguish handling of syscalls for compat tasks
if an arch requires that. In disussions about an earlier version of these
patches (http://marc.info/?l=linux-mips&m=147259973128606&w=2) it was suggested
to use audit arch for detecting syscall type. After analysing the code
for various arches it seemed to me that this would add an unnecessary
complexity (as would require extra APIs to enumerate and map all audit
arch types) and I've just simply used compat task status to determine call
type. I cannot see any added value from using the audit arch type in this
context.

Patch 3 add compat syscall metadata - this is mostly a copy of a set of macros
for generating metadata for standard syscalls.

Further patches add arch-specific methods required for differentiating between
standard and compat syscalls as well as for finding syscall addresses from
inside syscall tables.

I have tried to keep the tracing system working for bisections - and most
things work as previously until arch-specific patch is applied. The only
exception here is x86 which had extra methods to prevent incorrect syscall
reporting for compat tasks - this may happen after patch 2 is applied and 
without x86/tracing patch.
